  1. Has anyone still got a copy of the photo taken in the factory of an FT10 suspended by the rudder pintles? IIRC it was after the first couple of boats achieved warp 10 and the ass fell off... A friend’s brother bought a Tiger recently so I’m educating him on how the design came to be. Thanks in advance.
  2. Jesus. Thoughts are with those on board.
  3. Reliving the glory days? I mean, I hate doing bow... but it’s a compelling argument for getting the band back together!
  4. Yeah, I use it mixed into buttermilk for marinating chicken before deep frying.
  5. “Membership is the core pillar of any club, I'm sure you would agree. Sailing clubs of all sizes in Australia have have already begun asking casual and irregularly participating sailors to become members of their clubs... to great success.” Glen Stanaway on LinkedIn. YCMTSU
  6. And is there a link anywhere to 3 years worth of financials (preferably audited)? Just a P&L and a balance sheet would do nicely, thanks. It’s also interesting to note that the key club contacts between 2018 and 2019 became less satisfied and less engaged with Australian Sailing. So assuming those key contacts are board members, flag officers and key office staff... how do you think the ordinary club members feel about Australian Sailing? And if the largest revenue stream comes from “affiliation,” which presumably means clubs and your largest expense is staff - and
  7. Not at all, but I imagine that AS contributed financially towards moving Glen down to Tassie. So if he was campaigning for council in daylight hours...
  8. Is that why Glen Stanaway was running in the last Hobart council elections? He was trying to get out in front of this idea?
  9. Yeah, I expected to see some classic WOODY pics of Wild girls from the races... Tak about being let down!?!?
  10. If you google the story you still hit a paywall, but you can read the text behind the subscription invitation. The crux of the story is the decline in the number of actual multi sport coaches at the AIS from 20 to almost zero, and the subsequent increase in the number of bureaucrats and “consultants,” along with the AIS paying $2 million a year for office space in acknowledged sporting locations - like in the heart of Melbourne CBD? Apparently Ian “Fresh” Burns as Deputy Director of something Technical is rarely in Canberra as he commutes from San Fransisco to Sydney...
  11. That’s a name from the vaults.... what’s next? The return of Jacko?
  12. I like red wine, walks on the beach and foreign films...
  13. I think my favourite bit is “the remaining $600,000 was conditional on the sport hitting performance targets, which it missed.” So the person responsible for the creation of pathways towards those performance targets leaves... and then gets to penalise the organisation when the targets aren’t met?
  14. What’s long, hard and has cum in it? A cuCUMber.
  15. Cum... in? A dash of Orange juice is what I’d normally add to the egg and cinnamon. Just for a hint of citrus.
  16. Respectfully, getting a blowjob is a joy. Heaving to in a long keel sloop is... making the best of a bad situation? Even if both of these things can involve beer and French toast. Do you put cinnamon in the egg wash?
  17. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/sailing-boss-hits-out-over-pulled-600-000-as-olympic-funding-divides-sports-20181129-p50j6j.html Apologies if this was posted previously, but clearly AS has a funding shortfall to make up. But how? However can we make that shortfall up?
  18. I’m buying you a beer... well said, that man.
  19. So next year when I want to take my six year old on a twilight race to introduce her to the sport I love... she’ll need to be a club member? And when I travel to other Freo and SA members kindly offer to take myself and the missus for an afternoon race on the river (where is Poodle?) then my wife also has to have club membership? That’s officially fucked.
  20. Scroll down to this gif while playing “I’m farming and I grow it.” It’s spooky how well that fits....
  21. What’s the replacement going to be? Are there any Cookson’s left between the 12 and the 50? Julian does seem to have a “type.”
